I am little surprise to judge whether it’s a charm of Samsung hardware or Google’s Android OS which has helped Samsung to see such enormous success of latest launch Galaxy S II smartphone. According to latest stats from Samsung, company has sold 3 million Galaxy S II mobile phones in just 55 days from the launch – that means one Galaxy S II is getting sold every passing 1.5 second.
Interestingly, the first version of Galaxy family – Galaxy S – took 85 days to reach the same milestone and people around the globe were much cherished with such over whelming response. The new Samsung Galaxy S II has been launched in the market to complete with HTC sensation and LG Optimus 2X that belong to same class of smartphones. However, none of them are able to stand even closer to Galaxy S II sales figures despite of having low price tag in the market.
Just few days back another Android phone from Samsung – Galaxy Z, which is known to be a low-cost alternative of Galaxy S II, – has been spotted. In its original press release today, company said:
Samsung Electronics said on July 3 that its flagship smartphone Galaxy S 2 has marked the accumulated global sales of 3 million units, 55 days after its initial release: Within the period, a unit of Galaxy S 2 was sold in every 1. 5 seconds. This record shortens the record of 85 days of its predecessor Galaxy S, a ten-million global seller, by 30 days.
Samsung Electronics has dramatically increased its mobile market share in Europe, owing to the Galaxy S 2 smartholics there. In the UK where the local major reviewer Uswitch.com selected Galaxy S 2 as the best mobile phone in May and June, Samsung Electronics has become the most sold mobile brand for straight 17 weeks.
In Austria, Galaxy S 2 jumped into the fourth place on the smartphone hit-list, right after its release. In Switzerland, it spearheaded into the third. Owing to the fast-growing popularity of Galaxy S 2, Samsung Electronics topped the Austrian smartphone market with the market share of 30 percent. It also seized 36 percent of the smartphone market in Switzerland.
Meanwhile, Samsung Electronics held the launching events of Galaxy S 2 in Maxico and Brazil on June 30 to spread its ‘smart’ frenzies to Latin America.
